There are Bollywood actors who secretly aspire to join Hollywood….while there are others who like it at home and are not willing to join the global cat race.

1. Shah Rukh Khan
2. Deepika Padukone
Imagine watching Deepu in Furious 7. But it was not to happen, she turned down the role and instead opted for Happy New Year. Secretly, we are sure she must be regretting it.
3. Akshay Kumar
Untitled movie co-starring Dwayne Johnson
